Urgent Seating Question

Mon Jun 14, 2010 3:54 am

Hello all, I hope this doesn't come across confusing but here we go.  

I am flying on the following airplanes soon:

CRJ-700
Dash 8-Q400
737-900

Can any of you tell me which rows in each of those planes does not have a window, even in a "window seat"? I cannot fly in a non-window seat without getting kinda "panicky", so before I select my seats, can you please tell me which rows do not have windows even though they are on the "window side"? (Did that make any sense?  )

Apologies if it depends on the airline, but I am taking Alaska/Horizon.

Thanks a lot!

Try seatguru.com and look at their seat charts.

I did, but unless I am blind/missing something, it doesn't say which window seats are blocked.... does it?

For starters what airline are you flying?

I'll assume AS/Horizon.

Looking at Horizon Q400 for instance the map says:
Seat(s) 11ABDE "There is no window on the A,B side, and only partial window on the D,E side"

Ok, I understand it now. Thanks a lot for the help! I guess I am just stupid.

Dylan -
No apologies for wanting to know this type of info. For those preferring a window seat for whatever reason, it is disturbing to get on board and discover you're in one of those "windowless" window seats. A lot of airline seat maps do not disclose the seat row is missing a window and a lot of airline employees (non crew) simply don't know or don't observe when they're non-revving. It is nice to have a reference such as "seatguru" and "seatexpert" to obtain some good information.
Please note these additional items about the aircraft you're flying from personal experience:
CRJ700 and CRJ900 both have misaligned windows in just about every row. Try to select a seat forward of the exit row and avoid row 12 on the 700 due to window placement and lack of recline.
On the Q400 avoid row 11 as mentioned previously. Best rows are in rear of cabin....rows 18 and 19 give a good view and area is quieter further away from the props.
On the 739 avoid row 10 and the last row.
Let us know any observations you note on these aircraft too. Enjoy the ride,
Thomas
watch what you want. you may get it.

Wow, thank you a lot Thomas! That was really helpful.  

I am going to film all my takeoffs, and landings as I always do, so expect those when the time comes.

Hoping for a special livery!

Try seatexpert.com you can punch in your flight number and it'll show you the seat map of that aircraft. The "blocked out" windows are red. Not sure how accurate it is though.
